Adam Brody

Adam Brody grew up in his hometown of San Diego. After graduating, unable to pursue a career as a professional surfer, he convinced his parents to let him attend the University of Los Angeles and moved to Hollywood in January 1999. Instead of enrolling in school, he began searching for an agent to start his acting career. His first television appearance came in a sketch on "The Amanda Show." A few months later, after a series of odd jobs, he landed the lead role of Barry Williams in "Growing Up Brady," a telefilm on NBC. Soon after, he portrayed Zach in the American-Canadian series "Party of Five," and went on to roles in more well-known series such as "Gilmore Girls" and "Smallville." His breakthrough came in 2003 with the role of Seth Cohen in "The O.C.," which he played for four seasons. Simultaneously, he began his film career appearing in diverse movies such as "The Grind" (2003), a skateboard comedy, the horror film "The Ring" (same year), the action film "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" (2005), the dramatic comedy "In the Land of Women" (same year), and the satirical comedy "Thank You for Smoking" (2006). These roles allowed him to work alongside experienced actors like Naomi Watts, Meg Ryan, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and Aaron Eckhart. After "The O.C." ended in 2007, Adam Brody continued his career on the big screen, often navigating comedy genres: he played supporting roles in the stoner comedy "Smiley Face" (2008), the horror comedy "Jennifer's Body" (2009), the action comedy "Cop Out" (2010), and the romantic comedy "The Romantics" (2010). He also appeared in the horror film "Scream 4" (2011) and "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" (2012), a unique take on the apocalypse theme. In 2013, he took on a different role, portraying a mustachioed porn actor in "Lovelace" alongside Amanda Seyfried and James Franco. Another notable appearance was in "Welcome to the Jungle," where he finds himself lost in the jungle with Jean-Claude Van Damme. He also made a subtle return to television, appearing in three episodes of "House of Lies" with Don Cheadle, two episodes of the comedy "The League," and alongside Zooey Deschanel in "New Girl."
